LOCAL NOTES. From Wednesday'sDaily. We learn that sheep shearing will commence a few weeks earlier this year than heretofore. The Pioneer Press says the 20th regi ment, en route to Montana, will proceed, from Bismarck to Fort Assinaboine by coaches. It would be a good long coach ride. The boys, however, will not have to go through that ordeal. They will come up on the comfortable steamers of the Beuton "P" fleet. The Daily Age, published in New York, sends an enquiry blank to the postmaster, with the clipping attached: " A pontoon bridge will be built across the Missouri river at Fort Benton, M.T." Among the many questions asked, are the following: " Who are the incor porators of the scheme ? " " Is it to be worked by steam?" We are sorry the scheme did not work, its incorporator Mike Lynch-diverting the boats to a more profitable use, viz., that of trans porting bottles to St. Louis. A bridge across the Missouri at Fort Benton is one of the things of the future, and is within the p...

There is a lull in railroad speculation for the present and the hopes of north ern Montana for rail connection with the outside world are apparently not to be realized at once. Mr. Jim Hill is not as big a man as he used to be, and those who put their trust in Sir Alexander Galt are growing beautifully less, in number, every day. Mr. Peter Siems, of St. Paul, when here the other day, said to a RIVER PRESS representative: "There is too much territory betwe...

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. ON June 18, twenty-five of the leading editors of Mexico will leave for an ex tended tour through the UJnted States in the interest of the commercial rela tions of the two countries. THE locusts have visited California, where they have devastated a large number of grain fields. In some sec tions they have attacked the grape vines, in other places they amount to a scourge. We may expect them in Montana this season; at least it is predicted they will visit us. AN amLusing letter was received at the post office department recently from Sergeant Bates. He wants a place in the department. The letter relates that the Sergeant has walked 48,000 miles, made 2,600 lectures to 1,000,000 people, and all the while carried the United States flag and advanced the notion that sectional hatreds, engendered during the war, should be forgotten.

RIEL'S LIEUTENANT. The Report of His Capture at Fort Asslna boine and Subsequent Release Fully Confirmed. Our account of the capture and subse quent release of Gabriel Dumont and companion is fully confirmed. Gen. Terry furnished information of the fact to the press and the Canadian authori ties were doubtless informed at once. The fact that Dumont was released indi cates, ýt first thought at least, that the Canadian government made no effort to have Dumont held and were, apparent ly, glad enough to get rid of him. If rumor is true, they came to a different conclusion afterward. The following in regard to the status of the case is from the Pioneer Press, but it is very materially changed now, inasmuch as Dumont is at liberty again: Upon inquiry at department headquar ters here it was learned that no definite line of action as to the disposal of Du mont has been determined upon by the military headquarters. Certainly he will not be returned to Canada until a formal demand has been ma...

H. Brady Wilkins, a clerk in the as say office at Helena, has been removed by the assayer in charge. It would hardly be believed but it is said that A. J. Vance of the 28 mile springs measures forty-two inches around the chest and weighs 280 pounds. Assessor Murphy informs us that a man, whose name he did not learn, was 1 drowned last week while attempting to ford the north fork of Sun river. There were two in the vehicle and one saved himself by clinging to the wagon. It is rumored that the Clendenin c smelter is liable to secure a purchaser; who the parties are we did not learn. C A prominent mining man was there I looking at it but did not give away any intentions he may have had. We would be glad to see the smelter start up once more, and hope the rumors regarding it are not unf...

FORT BENTON AS A WOOL MARKET Fort Benton has always been the prin cipal wool market of Montana, and will hold the same prominent position this year, there being more sheep in the country tributary to this city than in any other section of the territory. The growth of this industry in the future will be something marvelous, northern Montana being a particularly favored land for the flockmaster, and the time is near at hand when, instead of one mil lion pounds, many mill...

Hill and party of personal frien's left St. Paul on the 28th ult. for New York. .t a recent meeting of the wool grow er, of the upper Sun river country, it «was resolved to pay nine cents per head for shearing, and to charge seventy-five cents per day for board. It is said there will be 18,000 head to shear in the South Fork valley and vicinity. The Belt Creek Land and Ditch com nany, whose properties are situate in hlioteau county, seems to be in luck. An English company has offered them a large price for their franchises.-In dependent. This is the ditch company of which rV. B.

THE RIVER PRESS. Published every Wednesday morning by the River Press Publishing Company. Bayliss W. Hanna will have to go to Persia or stay at home. Of course he will go. THE venerable Geo. W. Julian, of In diana, has been appointed surveyor gen eral of New Mexico. Mr. Julian's tal ents and distinction entitled him to something better than that. TEXAS cattlemen are still followed by an adverse fate. Just as they had made arrangements for opening a market in Cuba for a very considerable number of beef steers the government of that coun try sees an opportunity to gather in a few needed sheckles and lays on a heavy import duty, the new rule to be put in ] effect on and after July 1st, 1885. To us this seems a very short-sighted policy J on the part of those in authority in the I tropical isle. The beef used in that country is the poorest, toughest article t known, and in consequence but little is t consumed. If Texas was allowed to supply ajuicy, tender article for one season, until t...

MINING MATTERB. An Interesting Budget of News From Nei hart and Clendenin. From a gentleman who has just re turned from Neihart we learn that the outlook for the camp is at present very favorable, and there is every indication that it will prove equal to any camp in the territory. The work thus far done by the syndicate is of a very substantial character and will, before September, settle the prosperity of the district. There are about thirty men now em ployed. There is delay in getting the smelter of the Hudson Mining company in. The saw mill, which was shipped on Smith's teams, had arrived and is placed in position at Charlie Martin's ranch. It was expected to be in opera tion to-day. The news of wonderful developments in the camp has brought many men there, and there is not em ployment for them. The advice given is to stay away, it being no place for idle men. H. D. Burghardt is making prep arations for a small smelter on Carpen ter creek-grading a road and getting the ground rea...
